Visiting the Museum

PLEASE NOTE: The Museum is normally open to the public between 1:00  and 5:00 PM weekdays, but be advised that access to interior exhibits is very limited due to staff shortages.  We respectfully request that you contact us as far in advance, at least several business days before, as you can to schedule a visit so that we can arrange for a volunteer to show you around. Thank you. 


The Museum is normally open to the public between 1:00 and 5:00 PM weekdays. Due to staffing considerations, we recommend that you e-mail us at

or call us at 419-352-5616 to let us know you’re coming.


Many of our restored machines are normally stored inside the Museum building, and a tour of the building takes about 45 minutes. You are free to explore the outdoor exhibits on your own. You can take as many photographs as you want; we just ask that you don’t climb on the equipment. The Museum building is insulated but does not have climate control, so dress appropriately in event of temperature extremes.


Admission rates are:

  • HCEA Members: Free admission
  • Non-members, $7.00 includes a tour of the building.
  • Outside viewing only: Free admission 
  • 12 or under: Free admission.

Group rates are available for groups of 10 or more, provided the group has booked its visit in advance.


Donations in addition to admission fees are greatly appreciated. All proceeds go to our Building Fund.
